The Peace Exchange Bulletin
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Published by Tom Hayden, The Peace Exchange Bulletin is a reader-supported journal,
critically following the Pentagon's Long War in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq,
as well as the failed U.S. wars on drugs and gangs, and U.S. military responses
to nationalism and poverty around the world.

Earth Night

After 43 years of Earth Days, it is past time to contemplate the possible coming
of Earth Night.

There is little promise, so far, of a coming "reverse polarization" or evolutionary
leap that might prevent the piracy of our life support - clean air, water, soil
and healthy ecosystems - nor much sign that our institutions will heed the warnings
of climate scientists, and even the CIA, about the deepening eco-crisis. This is
no indication among the dominant think tanks of re-thinking beyond the models of
market or state capitalism, which mindlessly measure "growth" by stealing natural
resources from future generations. Nor is there evidence that the power grab by
corporations over democracy will soon diminish.

Boston Bombings Boost Terror Paradigm

As questions about the Boston Marathon bombings continue to unfold, one point seems
clear. The bombings have increased national support for the Global War on Terror
just as public anxiety was on the wane and questioning by Congress and the mainstream
media was on the rise.

Guantanamo's Death Row
President Barack Obama's Guantanamo choice - to release the hunger strikers [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=0018FfvZyK7dPairz5TONoX-35iM-Bz5A6UmbumKC_nEkCi-PIKVvNaj2g4CIHZzLSb7_PZIuL7MQy2N-Ci_4pmyRbzllO8B5UkD7ZhbHcSs0jWzmV6Tn2rFj2d4z6BQXZa9OQTVOjDH0JfUQiwRssw5Amilwvz-R5mCExVTiJwYDOt8VSHXBGJqw_srV_9fAMddpbnVXhN006jQvLYWRPPDA==]or
let them die - reminds me of Margaret Thatcher's similar choice in 1981 when "the
Iron Lady," as her admirers called her, allowed 10 Irishmen to slowly starve to
death because she would not recognize their most basic human rights. Thatcher's
stubborn reputation was preserved. But the whole world was watching. One of the
strikers, Bobby Sands, was elected to parliament as he lay dying. The agony caused
massive sympathy for Irish Republicans and led directly to the political success
of Sinn Fein and the Good Friday peace agreement.

U.S. Policies Allow Sweatshop Fires

The latest sweatshop disaster in Bangladesh, which claimed the lives of over 200
young women, calls into question the foundations of US globalization policies since
the Clinton era. It is not enough to blame the corruption of Bangladesh factory
owners, nor sufficient to suggest better training and factory codes from Walmart
or the Gap [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=0018FfvZyK7dPba-HVh5gPLUCsHaYJClp9e88XSL9bSU-D6jjNCx7C40yvHWrHBMP6dUjHa68QIBv3ooMPxr2OwzKITzQGk_HS5BxD64i-3JSoHtXVFhzfBIkj7iWtBhwSHH_uYyAfb3lsbZJUT3K7LVHx403GT0apbcshi6WgNOE6XPtr7UwN-oLCtB_LPWx-D].
It is time to ban the US sale of garments made in Bangladesh until enforceable labor
codes are imposed on that country.

Lessons From Iraq

Thank you, Reps. Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee, for your organized forum reflecting
on the Iraq war experience. My comments are these:

The importance of a Congressional bloc willing to hold hearings, introduce legislation
and offer amendments to cut funding cannot be overstated. Public opinion could 
be mobilized at congressional district levels to pressure congressional members,
hold demonstrations, organize counter-recruitment campaigns and channel energy 
into national elections. This approach, gradual as it seemed, was the only way 
out of Iraq and proved to be a model for the subsequent effort to "wind down" 
the war in Afghanistan.
